Rob takes a look back at Brett Ratner's X-Men 3, to see if it's better than it's generally given credit for...

Any regular visitors to the growing universes of superhero films will know that X-Men: The Last Stand is one of the least-loved instalments since the genre came back with a bang in 2000.

It is seen by many as a hugely disappointing end to what could have been a near-perfect movie trilogy after all the expert world-building by Bryan Singer in the first two instalments.

Rotten Tomatoes’ consensus on the film is that new director Brett Ratner had ‘replaced the heart and emotion (and character development) of the previous X-Men films with more action and explosions’, averaging the scores of its ‘Top Critics’ at a measly 41%.

However, it cannot be said that it was in any way ‘the last stand’ for mutancy at the movies. »
